Four Stages of Knowledge
Children begin to read and write
learn to communicate with others
wonders and worlds revealed.
Adolescents hone those skills
insatiable hunger grows within
inhibited imagination relaxed.
Young adults open to thought
create new-found concepts to marvel
limitless knowledge spread before.
Aged and wise now understood
in a life magnificent and full
our learning never ends.
